|5 days 8 hours ago||Probably the oddest thing||
Probably the oddest thing about this is that Herbstreit is littered with this, but NOTHING on Miles being fired. WTF man?
|5 days 8 hours ago||I can't imagine a scenario||
I can't imagine a scenario where this timeline benefits recruiting.
|5 days 8 hours ago||This has to be the worst||
This has to be the worst timing for a major program to fire a coach ever. I mean EVER.
|5 days 9 hours ago||I really wonder sometimes if||
I really wonder sometimes if these "old media" dinosaurs have the slightest clue how close they are to losing the last of their influence, like the news media has, due to the proliferation of available information. Then I see something like this and it totally cements how clueless they are to the changing landscape in which they operate.
|5 days 9 hours ago||I actually find Herbstreit's||
I actually find Herbstreit's tweet to be far more egregious. His dual role as analyst and part of the broadcast team is really awkward ethically (if there is such a thing as broadcast and journalist ethics...).
|5 days 9 hours ago||"And almost never shows a||
"And almost never shows a tint of bias."
|5 days 10 hours ago||No, but it really would be||
No, but it really would be nice to return to grass when this field turf needs replacement in the next year or two.
|5 days 10 hours ago||100% this. It really does look different this year.||
100% this. It really does look different this year.
|5 days 12 hours ago||I don't believe they measure||
I don't believe they measure records like this that way since they are different teams. I don't disagree with you, but that's not how they do it (or they would have cited that team last week, rather than going back to 1903).

|5 days 12 hours ago||If you're out of control and||
If you're out of control and attempting to intercept the ball (if in fact he was trying to do that) that doesn't make it ok.
|5 days 12 hours ago||If you look at all of the||
If you look at all of the available angles he was NOT going for the interception (if he was he was absurdly late and off target from where the ball was).

Doesn't require hitting with the crown of the helmet...
|5 days 12 hours ago||That only fixes half of the||
That only fixes half of the problem. You can get called for targeting without helmet to helmet contact (we've seen that in two of our four games now).

Was their head contact on a defenseless player?
|5 days 12 hours ago||"well...its interesting they||
"well...its interesting they figured out how to decipher intent regarding face mask fouls and that carries a 5 or 15 yard variety with no ejection foul."
|5 days 13 hours ago||Exactly. I'm not remotely||
Exactly. I'm not remotely sure how it's even debatable that it wasn't the right call. For some reason way too many people seem to think it only applies to helmet to helmet contact. 100% the right call.
|5 days 13 hours ago||Agreed. Also, the "going for||
Agreed. Also, the "going for the ball" argument is BS. It looked that way from one angle, but from all others he was WAY too late to the ball for that (in which case if he was going for the ball, everything Magnus said about thinking better of it applies).
|5 days 13 hours ago||If people watched those games||
If people watched those games and then watched the games also played by LSU and ND the rest of the season so far, they should not. It's a resume in name only based on past performance of those opponents. I mean, hell LSU should have lost to Jacksonville State. That's not to say that I'm not concerned about Wisconsin, just not for "resume" reasons.
|5 days 13 hours ago||Is this for real?||
Is this for real?
|5 days 13 hours ago||Does that work when there is||
Does that work when there is still 3/4 of the season left to demonstrate that this wasn't the problem? Haha...
|5 days 13 hours ago||Yes. That game was||
Yes. That game was incredible. The long run by Threet!
|5 days 14 hours ago||Not consecutive. In a season yes.||
Not consecutive. In a season yes.
|5 days 14 hours ago||Largest ever margin of||
Largest ever margin of victory against Penn State. Prior was 27 points.
|5 days 14 hours ago||Note: 1903 team had 7 straight. 1902 had 4 straight.||
Note: 1903 team had 7 straight. 1902 had 4 straight.
|5 days 14 hours ago||Never mind. Still the 1903||
Never mind. Still the 1903 and 1902 teams. That'll be a virtually impossible record to surpass. Wow. 7 straight...
|5 days 14 hours ago||Consecutive games 45 points||
Consecutive games 45 points or more perhaps? If I recall, last week or had not happened since the very early 1900s, so maybe?
|5 days 17 hours ago||I'm willing to bet he would||
I'm willing to bet he would have retired after last season had they not been stomped in the semifinal.

Just read on past it if you don't like it. What's the big deal?
|6 days 7 hours ago||Oh yeah. Sometimes it's worth||
Oh yeah. Sometimes it's worth posting ridiculous things (like the Big 10 show comments) to later go back and laugh at them.
